In Topic: Will (when) we sign new players?

Could be quite a sleep!
Will you still post on MF??

I probably would but I don't post much anymore as is.

I just miss the teams that had exciting skill players, even on the level of Grella and Sam. Something fun to watch.

Hopefully Struber does better than Armas and gives the fans a more exciting product on the field.

I'm probably in the minority here but I want them to sign an aging Euro star like Diego Costa. You have to spend to win MLS Cup but even then it can be a toss up. At least give the fans a skill player that could do something cool at any moment. Henry and Cahill weren't the youngest but whenever you would watch those teams there was always a chance you would see something special from them.

If they go into the season again with White/Barlow up top plus a synergy signing and a few draft pick/RBII scrub signings then I'm just going to hibernate my fandom for the club until this penny pinching era is over. There's a lot of other better uses of my time than investing it in watching a feeder farm team that is making no effort toward progress.

In Topic: BWP signs with LAFC, then Columbus

BWP getting signed by Columbus pretty much debunks the "father time is undefeated" and "he's washed up" arguments that people were trying to make on this website prior to the start of last season.

BWP goes from one championship-caliber team to another.

There's no reason he couldn't have been a backup at Red Bull or retired here. He's still better than Barlow and White.

I'm just sick of the fucking loans. Stop sending us guys who need to work on their fitness. Send us guys who could realistically be here for the long haul.

Yep. It's exhausting seeing other clubs spend on quality attackers and Red Bull is just sending castoffs from Europe. Show some ambition and initiative for once.

Sometimes you also have to give players time Pedro Santos didnt do anything his first two years in the league. If we had that everyone on here would say he is the worst signing ever and the team should cut him. Pryzbylko is a career 2 Bundesliga player bet you would think we were not doing enough if we signed someone with a similar profile.

Who do you think on the current roster could become one of these talents in a few years? I don't think there is anyone.

Teams that compete are always spending and tinkering with their offense. I'm not seeing Tom Barlow scoring a dozen goals per season going forward. Or CCJ, Dru Yearwood, Valot, Omir...
